What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Day!


This is one of my favorite pages. The colors, the patterns, the words and the emotions all blended together to perfectly sum up how I was feeling that day. I look at this page and think, "me."


Tristan got the mail and (with my permission) excitedly ripped open the package from Stampington. Inside was my sample copy of Art Journaling magazine. He was very proud to see his Mom's artwork on the cover as well as the eight page article inside. It's a surreal experience having your work published. Not sure if it is one that I will ever get used to. I'm very thankful for it when it happens. Hopefully it will inspire more folks to crack open their journals and dive in.
